FutureFERNS is Netball New Zealand’s (NNZ) official junior netball programme for Year 1-8 children.  To ignite a lifelong involvement in netball, a wonderful programme has been developed that is at the right level for the players at each stage. The emphasis is on fun activities conducted in a safe environment. Small sided games are the preferred training method and are proven to be the most appropriate way to enhance skill and tactical development.

For Year 5-8 players there is a 13 week FutureFERN programme that is played on Saturday mornings either indoors at Selwyn Sports Centre in Rolleston, or outdoors at the Selwyn Netball Courts in Lincoln.

Year 5&6 play modified 6-aside games, and Year 7&8 play 7-aside games.

The teams will have a training session during the week which is held at the Halswell Netball Courts in the Halswell Domain behind the Halswell Tennis Club. 

First game is on Saturday 11th May

There is no netball - Saturday 1st June (Kings Birthday weekend) and Saturday 13th July (school holidays)

There is an end of season funday for Year 5/6 on Sunday 25th August

Year 5-8 Info Evening – great for any players, coaches, umpires or parents to understand our netball philosophy and rules for our Year 5-8 age group. Date TBC
